Why Evidence-based Family Therapy?

    The most effective and creative models of treatment used in scientific clinical trials are often hidden from academic programs and community training sites.  They are buried away from the public by politics, traditions and myths about the art and science of mental health treatment.  Although dozens of successful treatment programs exist to address the most difficult psycho-social-relational problems in our society, many barriers prevent public access to these successful forms of treatment. 

    So, I’ve taken my knowledge to the street!  All my professional activities improve access to researched interventions in substance abuse, mental health and integrative health care.  Best of all, they keep art and science together and emphasize the critical importance of relationships.

    Did you know that relationships are a matter of life and death?  Research evidence in medicine and social science shows that nearly every ailment known to mankind can be helped through activating positive relationships.  People live longer when they have quality social support.  However, not all practitioners receive training or have the time to pay attention to those important relationships that can help our health and mental health.  Marriage and family therapists have the training and the time!
